IN noob with new bike questions
May 31, 2009 at 11:19 pm #2930
I have been looking into getting a bike for a while now and I plan on taking the MSF course, but I was just curious as to what size bike to get. I would like a ninja 250, but I am 6′ 280lbs and was just curious if that would really affect what kind of bike I get.June 1, 2009 at 1:33 am #19129wbsprudelsParticipant

Bikes, like cars, are not typically sized to the height/weight of the user. If you’re 5-2 or shorter, or approaching 7 foot, there will be some bikes that feel too big or small. But even then, many can be modified to fit. For someone of your height, you should have no worries.
If it feels comfortable sitting on it, you should be fine.June 2, 2009 at 11:52 pm #19229
thanks for the help
